This week, Maggie’s on some fun antibiotics, so she’s feeling a little loopy. Thankfully she’s finished one very large project and didn’t try working on the others that she has on the go. Karen, meanwhile, is still working on the same things as last week, though she does have some suggestions for those that are hexipuffing along. There’s lots of movie news and some flashbacks to our childhoods, as well as some things for the kids in all of us. There’s also a reminder that time is ticking away to gift-giving season, so we have a few suggestions on where to look for last-minute knits.

As usual you can email us at knit1geek2@gmail.com or join in the discussion on the Knit 1 Geek 2 Ravelry group as well as chatter with us on Twitter. And you can check out our merch in our Zazzle.com and Zazzle.ca stores!

And apparently Strombo now does a show called George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight. The set looks just like the set of “The Hour”, okay?
